Samsung is not the best when it comes to software updates, however, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users who have recently made the jump to these devices due to the faulty Galaxy Note 7 now have something to smile about.
When the Galaxy Note 7 came out, it had some software exclusives that were not available on the Galaxy S7 units, which were released months before the former came to the market. Of course, the gap between them gave Samsung some reasonable time to add more perks and software tweaks to the Note 7’s TouchWiz UI and software experience in general. Now, this same experience is finally making its way to the Galaxy S7 units.
The latest reports claim that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are both receiving some new software updates that are bringing the phone’s always-on display feature on level terms with what Galaxy Note 7 has, among them customization. Of course, not every aspect of the Note 7 has been carried over to the Galaxy S7 handsets, especially since some require the S Pen in order to work. In fact, early adopters of the update are already complaining that there are some broken features, for instance, the email app from Samsung is still having issues with the notifications.
So, if you came from the Galaxy Note 7 and now you own a Galaxy S7 Edge, it won’t take you ages before seeing what you have been experiencing on the former. Still, it is a welcome update for those who were previously using the phones, especially since Samsung is desperately in need of keeping them glued to the handset.
This small step doesn’t mean every aspect of the Galaxy Note 7’s software will be migrated to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. However, it is clear that the company is doing everything to keep S7 owners happy. If anything, these two handsets might end up being the only flagship offerings from Samsung for the next few months.
